Hook Mustad 36890, sizes 4-2
Eyes Bead chain, dumbbell, or Spirit River Eyes-Balz - material and size depends on the amount of weight you want to add. Example has Eye-Balz.

Tail 1-inch long straight-cut orange bunny fur.  Tie middle of strip at the bend of the hook, but don't trim off the leftover. The remainder will be brought over the top after the body is wrapped.

This fly can be found in Fly-Fishing for Pacific Salmon II, by Les Johnson and Bruce Ferguson. It is mentioned there as a fly for Coho, thought the version shown is purple. This and other chartreuse mixes have brought me some success for Chum Salmon.
